Goa is all set to hold its first ever LGBT parade - Goa Rainbow Pride Walk 2017- on October 28 here. According to an organiser, the initiative is aimed at raising awareness about the rights of the LGBT community. In the parade that will be taken out from the Old Secretariat to Miramar beach (approximately five kms), members of the LGBT community and general public are expected to take part. "It is happening for the first time in Goa. We want to create awareness about the rights of the LGBT community. There are several wrong notions about the community, which need to be addressed through this event," Alexander Fernandes, one of the organisers of this event, said.
